We are blessed with a wide variety of restaurant within easy reach of the cottages. We even have celebrity chefs including Hugh Fearnley Whittingstalls “River Cottage” in Axminster and Mark Hix’s “Oyster and Fish House” in Lyme Regis.
Our three local favourites in Honiton have become consistent award winners, with the “Holt” winning both the Taste of the West Gastro Pub in The South West as well as Devon, “The Railway” winning the Best Freehouse in the South West in the Great British Pub Awards and Combe House winning best Dining Hotel in the South West.
River Cottage Canteen and River Cottage HQ. Axminster 12 miles
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has opened two places to eat in Axminster. Firstly, the Canteen. Simple decor, unfussy food and really good value. Open all lunchtimes and Tuesday to Saturday evenings. Huge hit with everyone who has been including ourselves. Booking strongly advised. Secondly, River Cottage HQ. This is the big barn event that you may be familiar with from the TV series. Mainly Friday and Saturday nights (check for details), the menu provides four or five courses of the best of local produce, wine and entertainment afterwards. Great for group bookings and therefore a minibus! Booking essential.
